MAC Wonder Woman: Video Review (Part 1 – Eyes)

First impressions/preliminary review of the eyeshadows, mascaras, pigments/glitters from the MAC Wonder Woman Collection.  I always film these as I swatch, so it is the first time seeing the products for me in the video as well.

Product & Review FAQ

When and where can I purchase? How much is it?

MAC Wonder Woman will be available in-stores on February 10th, 2011 (North America) and March 2011 (International). It will be online approximately February 8th, possibly as early as the 7th. Many stores are holding unveilings on February 1st--call your local store to ask (or ask if they know of any in your area) to RSVP. PRO stores generally launch collections one week prior, so February 3rd, 2011. The collection will be available at all counters and freestanding stores.

Is it limited edition?

Yes. All products in this launch are limited edition, because of special packaging, but some shades are available in standard packaging as noted.

When will you review X?

I will review everything as soon as humanly possible. I'm working as quickly as possible to get through the process. Thank you for your patience!

What about dupes?

As always, I will provide dupes for each shade within the review, and then I will look for additional dupes and provide comparison swatches the day or so after--once I've actually had a chance to go through and look for them. (Looking and swatching dupes takes 2-4 hours easily.)

Where are the nail polishes?

Unfortunately, they could not be overnighted like the other products, so I do not have them at this time. As soon as I do, I will be happy to photograph, swatch, and review for you.

Did you purchase these?

No, all products featured are product samples provided by MAC Cosmetics for consideration. We are fortunate that Wonder Woman is such a large launch that MAC has provided us with sapmles to allow us to give you a full review along with photos and swatches before it launches (and sells out).

    hmm. I really liked that last pallete. With the greens.

    Thanks for the video – I was feeling neutral on the eyes before and now I know I can stay away without feeling like I’ve missed out on anything. The pigments didn’t call me, and the one quad I really liked (the greens) is too warm for my skin tone. My pocketbook will be happy!

    Wow…I already had the Valiant Quad on my wish list…Seems that everyone is getting that one. Maybe I should change my MAC Feb 10 WW appt to the morning!lol

    Well, looks like I’ll be passing on this collection, which is a good thing. The only thing I had my eye on was the Valiant Quad, but I have good dupes of all of those colours already.

    I feel like we’ve seen these quads before, sort of. They remind me of In The Gallery, Photo Realism, and Tone Grey, not exact dupes, but pretty close.

    The only original thing I see in the eye products is the mascara. I wouldn’t get enough use out of it to justify the purchase, as all of my coloured mascaras in the past have just collected dust.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your dupes and comparisons, Christine, and of course, the overall review and recommendations :-)

    Oh I’m so conflicted. I hate the packaging but love how the Defiance quad looks. hahaha what to do!?
